Namibia

NAMIBIA SAFARI TOURS

A utopia of vast terrain and brimming with wildlife, Namibia is a stunning destination for adventure and discovery. With a large Atlantic coast that crosses the Tropic of Capricorn, the country also has many national parks which are host to hundreds of species of animals, birds and plants.

The coastal city of Swakopmund has lots to offer in terms of adrenaline fuelled activities as its landscape is wild and rugged. The dunes are ideal for sandboarding and quad biking, as well as the town being a great place to skydive and see dolphins. The city itself is great for shopping and has delicious local cuisine to try. The dunes soon turn to mountains as you venture through to Spitzkoppe to see the mighty granite monoliths and strange rock formations.

Our Namibia tours also give you a chance to meet and integrate with the socially dynamic Himba tribe, well known for their semi-nomadic pastoral lifestyle. The Himba population is estimated at about 50,000, and they're famous for their practice of applying otjize, a red paste made of ochre which symbolises the richness of the earth and life essence.

If you're a lover of wildlife, there are few better places than Etosha National Park to see a great variety of amazing creatures in their natural habitat. Our Namibia holidays take you by the waterholes and natural springs of the park, which are ideal to catch a glimpse of zebras, impala, wildebeest, cheetahs and elephants. The capital city of Windhoek gives you an opportunity to explore the streets, visit markets and get a taste for the contemporary culture of Namibia.

TOUR REVIEWS

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
Excellent

My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.

Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
